What Is Salicylic Acid?
Salicylic Acid is the key ingredient for restoring purity and clarity to the skin. It is a highly effective chemical exfoliant and an excellent pore cleanser. It works by gently removing old cells from the skin, and can also help to boost collagen production. It also has soothing properties, making it useful for anyone with breakouts and redness.
Because salicylic acid has a larger molecular structure to Glycolic Acid it stays on the surface of the skin longer giving it fantastic pore clearing capabilities. It has been found that BHA's are effective with as little as one-fifth the concentration typically found in products containing AHA's, which is why a lower percentage works so well. The typical concentration of salicylic acid in over the counter products is 1-2%.
If you suffer from Dry Skin, Sun Damage, Pigmentation, or Premature Ageing please take a look at our Glycolic Acid or Lactic which would be a more suitable treatment.
To reduce the risk of an allergic reaction patch testing is always advised, even if you have used another ordinary salicylic acid product.
Side effects may include mild itching or stinging and slight flaky patches.
Acne prone skin and body acne - Salicylic acid is a fantastic product at reducing breakouts but acne is a medical condition and usually needs treatment which can be provided by your GP or a board certified dermatologist. A good, daily skincare routine is important for skin health and skincare products will support your acne treatments but will not treat acne.
